About Film Festival Day

An initiative of the Film Festival Alliance, a collaborative community of mission-driven film festivals, Film Festival Day is designed to support filmmakers, audiences and film festivals alike. Hundreds of film festivals across North America have been cancelled or postponed as a result of COVID-19. Movies can unite us in a way that no other art form can, and film festivals play an essential role in connecting our community and supporting the works of independent storytellers. Please join us in a celebration of our communities, our audiences, independent filmmakers and what makes the film festival experience so unique.
